Goodbye FeedBurner, Hello MailChimp

While All Things Digital had been using FeedBurner–now owned by Google (GOOG)–for a while, and although it pains us to leave any creation made by Dick Costolo, the new provider of our daily email newsletter is MailChimp.

For ATD readers, we think MailChimp is more versatile and flexible. We can publish more than just our RSS feed within the email, including hot and trending topics, links to evergreen coverage and apps, and advertising.

Plus, it’s prettier, as you can see from the screenshots below.

It will deliver every morning at about 6 am PT, and you can sign up here.
